2021-2022 Kindergarten Pre-Registration will be done over the phone or by mail this year due to Covid-19 restrictions. Please call the Gifford Grade School office 217-568-7733 the week of February 1st between the hours of 9:00-11:00 a.m. or 1:00-3:00 p.m. The office staff will walk you through the process and then we will mail out or you can pick up a packet at a designated time. When picking up the packet please have a copy of your child's birth certificate for the school office. To enroll in Kindergarten, a child must be 5 years old by September 1, 2021. It is necessary to pre-register your child so that an accurate count will be available for ordering supplies and planning for the upcoming school year.

Students had a budget of $80 to plan a Thanksgiving meal for six family members. It was hard work, but most everyone stayed under budget. Happy Thanksgiving from Third Grade!

Student Council members worked together to prepare "care packages" for local Veterans. They decorated the front of the building with flags and ribbons in the trees. The care packages contained a star cookie, bookmark and handwritten card. Veteran's got their bags by a "drive-up" method. They also sent care packages to the Veteran's at the nursing home in Gifford.
